Using our libraries

Most of our Libraries provide air cooling and we aim to stay open in our normal vacation opening hours. However, if we are unable to maintain a reasonable working or study temperature, we may need to close at short notice. 

Guidance on available facilities in each of our libraries and the latest updates is available below. Our coolest libraries are Hallward Library and George Green Library on University Park.

Our libraries provide access to fresh cold water so you can stay hydrated. Browse all water cooler locations at WasteNott

Please look after yourself when studying or working - take regular breaks and plan your visit to us carefully. If you feel unwell whilst in our libraries please alert a member of staff
